E-Mails Show How Katrina Swamped Governor Blanco

Snip:

Blanco's aides were also aware of racial politics — an issue conjured up by the crowds of black New Orleanians who were forced out of their homes by flooding, then waited for days to be rescued, without food or water. When U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters (news, bio, voting record), a black Democrat from California, requested security escorts for a New Orleans visit, the head of state police denied the request, saying troopers were busy elsewhere.
What a dunce.
